Puppies come into this program typically around 10-11 weeks of age and top out of the program around 16 weeks of age. Our Puppy Program emphasizes the significance of understanding how puppies learn and how to communicate with them. Come learn the encouraging language of positive reinforcement that will provide a rewarding, respectful, lifelong relationship between you and your puppy!
The Puppy Program will open back up on Saturday, June 6th with another class held on Monday mornings. There is limited capacity and extra safety protocol in place for your safety - PLEASE SIGN UP FOR THIS PROGRAM. It is not neccessary to wear face converings, since the proper distancing will be upheld. Please stay 6 feet distance from people while walking your puppy around the campus. If you do get closer, just do not stand near anyone longer then 8-10 minutes.
